It’s been a while, but we’re back in style

I’ve spent the last few months neglecting this but I’m here now and thats what matters. I spent March working on my productivity work flow and I think I have it dialed in, just in time for Apple to release new software and mess it al up. I’mm do another post about that workflow soon. In April I tried and failed to eliminate all artificial sugar from my diet. It was awful and I would not recommend it. Maybe I’m just not disciplined enough for it but it was the hardest thing I’ve ever tried. The take away from that failed attempt was that I can survive eating less sugar, and I’ve been making better choices when it comes to what I eat.

That brings us to May. I spent the month of May not spending any money on anything that wasn’t essential. Meaning no new phone case, clothes, games, or anything that I didn’t absolutely need to survive. I did a pretty good job with it I think. I’ve had more money to do fun stuff with my family And thats a good thing. Earlier this month I also started a kind of small business, for a few years now I have been the default “Can you watch our house/pets while we go out of town?” Person in my neighborhood and among our group of friends. So I decided to make it as official as I could. I started a facebook page for it and its been going really well. Its really making me actively look for work, that means I’m not laying around all day not really doing anything.
